The First Tier of Avalon lies a short distance above the creek. It is home to some good sport routes, including Sword In The Stone (10), Mists of Avalon (10a), Iron Maiden (9+), Slayer (10b), Body Count (11a), and Marquis de Sade (10d).

Marquis de Sade is the fifth route from the left on the First Tier, right of Body Count. It is on the right side of the obvious near vertical face.
